Another plant that has fallen out of popularity or fashion is the pampas grass, for bizaar and ridiculous reasons, ranging from "chav-ness" to apparently being representative of the home-owners association with a rather sleezy club pastime!!!
What a load of rot!!! I have just bought myself a lovely pink fluffy pampass --- can you get more chavvy than that??? And wall-flowers were considered, not so long ago, as a really "old-lady-ish" plant, and quite naff! I have planted a whole gaggle of these in red and white either side of our school chapel doorway, and they look really green and lush. When the flowers come, I hope everyone will feel uplifted rather than "old-ladyish"!!!!
